Public Service Announcement: Silver Trainers Are Exactly What Your Shoedrobe Needs

Public Service Announcement: Silver Trainers Are Exactly What Your Shoedrobe Needs

News from the fashion week frontline: silver trainers are happening and are big news. Navigate your way through 2018 in style with a pair of high-shine, high-impact trainers that combine style and comfort.

Oversized sneaker with silver detailing, €395 at Alexandermqueen.com

If, for some reason, you’ve been sheltered under a rock of late or are allergic to social media and have yet to discover the #ShoesdayTuesday hashtag on Instagram, then you might not know that this trainer is, in fact, THE trainer to covet. The Alexander McQueen aptly named “oversized sneaker”(original, right?) features smooth calf leather, large flat laces, oversized rubber soles, and finished with an Alexander McQueen signature on the tongue.

Nike SportswearAir More Uptempo, €190 at Nakedcph.com

In need of some fresh air? Don’t worry, I have just the cure for you. Presenting the Air More Uptempo, featuring a white base colour with silver AIR letters splashed on top and a translucent outsole. A Swoosh is featured on the toe and heel, nodding to true Nike heritage. Upgrade your wardrobe with these sparkling silver kicks.

Beaded silver and houndstooth print sneaker, €39.95 at Zara

Beaded fabric sneaker, €39.95 at Zara

These Vans-style, slip-on trainers are the perfect arsenal to keep under your desk during busy days. The checked fabric will hide any dirt you come in contact with, while the diamond applique gives these trainers an up-town, expensive feel. Also, no laces. What’s not to love?

Nike Air Vapormax, €190 at Nike.com

The Air Vapormax brings comfort to new heights. A mesh design sits atop the lightweight, bouncy cushioning for the feeling that you’re defying gravity (I can vouch for this). Carved-out sections in the sole help keep the shoe incredibly flexible and lightweight, while the durable design will help keep these looking newer for longer.

Gucci glittered leather platform trainers, €750 at net-a-porter.com

Let me introduce you to, quite possibly, the most bad-ass trainer you’ll ever see. The Gucci will help you reach new heights (and probably social status. Everyone want’s to be friends with the woman who has these). These statement trainers are designed to glimmer and stand out from every angle. Made from silver glittered leather, they’re set on a lightweight platform sole and finished with the house’s signature blue, red and white webbing. Wear yours to add impact to tailoring or cropped denim. Not for wallflowers.
